Unless of course you run one 2209 off the onboard DVI and one off the card, but I've not found anything which says that works anywhere... ?!

Got a GTX680 myself. I've run x3 monitors. One from display port and 2 from DVI.

typically if you have plugged another card in to a motherboard then that would disable any onboard video.

You should be able to run two monitors from the two dvi connections and one from the display port.

FYI display port replaces dvi connections.

I need to run 2x Dell 2209 monitors (they use VGA or DVI ports) and this new Dell 2713 which has VGA, DVI and DisplayPort. So that's 2x 1680x1050 and 1x 2560x1440. They need to be ideally on one graphics card which isn't going to hump me into next week, current choice was this: clicky (external link) but the guys at Ascent advised one monitor would have to run off HDMI as opposed to running the two 2209's off the DVI-D and DVI-I sockets.

Says it can run 4 concurrent displays:

Should be good to go if you ask me!

Not to the same degree. Toner carts can get clogged by humidity, the foam rollers in the printer can become brittle, otherwise not much goes wrong with them just sitting around.

BTW, loving your photos, you definitely have your mojo back!

Anyone else had problems with the Windows 8.1 update.

I managed to get it to run at last. After many many hours.

As my internet connection is so slow, it took about 12 hours to download the update.
I did this a couple of weeks ago when the release first came out.
Then I started the install in the morning thinking it would take maximum 30 minutes or so.

After about 3 hours I cancelled the installation and restored the old operating system as I needed to work.

So a few days later I tried again when I had more time.
It luckily didn't download again, but started to install immediately.
Ran for a couple of hours that hang at 85% installed. I waited another 2 hours, and the 85% hadn't changed, so I cancelled again and restored windows 8.0.

searched the forums & found that I should de install all non microsoft drivers & just give it time.

So yesterday afternoon I de installed my video driver, printer driver, tv card driver & started the update at about 5:00 pm, by 7:00pm or so it had made it to 85% and was hanging. So I left it.
Before I went to bed at 11:30pm it was still at 85%!!! but rather than turning it off, I left it running. (A bit of a pain as it is in our bedroom... but luckily is a quiet computer).
Woke this morning and saw the computer was in standby mode. so turned on the monitor & moved the mouse and waited for the computer to fire up. At first I thought I had a blue screen, but after further investigation I was pleasently surprised to find a license agreement & that the update was through.
Holy Cow. No idea how long it took then, but at least 7 hours.. perhaps much more, just to perform the update!

I had no issues. downloaded and install the update with in the morning. Started at 8am before leaving for work. remote controlled the PC from work just to make sure it wasn't doing anything dumb.

Around 11ish I could contact my PC and figured that it had rebooted and when I was home I was right :)

Don't take those time frames as anything to go by. I was doing work and sometimes that leads me away from the keyboard
